Community comes together to get rid weeds the main-street


A “Need to Weed” event was organised by Egremont Town Council on
31 st July led by our Chairperson Neil Ferguson and Vice- Chairperson Sam
Pollen.
What a fantastic turn out – around 50 people attende d including Town
Councillors & staff, residents & staff from Calderwood House, Royal
British Legion members, Works 4 You Ltd, Egremont Youth Partners hip,
Copeland’s Park Ranger and members of the public who were all keen to
lend a hand in cleaning up our town.


The morning turned out to be a big success with weeds, debris and litter
being removed from the Main Street, Egremont Castle and the surrounding areas.
Although keeping the street free of weeds is the County County’s
responsibility, due to a number of setbacks including the covid- 19
pandemic, the weeds had got out of hand but thanks to everyone who
attended and who obviously care about our town, it is looking much
better already.
Egremont Town Council would therefore like to sincerely thank those
who attended, the excellent work carried out today has made a difference
and thanks must also go to Copeland Borough Council for supplying the
necessary equipment to carry out the work.


The Town Council now intend to organize a further weeding and litter
pick event in August to keep our street looking the best it can be so we
hope you are all able to join us again.


Everyone is advised to keep looking at the Egremont Town Council page
and on the poster point for details of our next event and it is hoped that
as many people will support us again – in fact everyone including
business es are more than welcome to attend and if we ALL work
together, we WILL make a difference.

Need to weed- Volunteer weeding day on Egremont main street

  Egremont Town Council are having a weeding & litter picking morning on Friday 31st July.
  We will be meeting at the Market Hall at 11.00am.
  Anyone attending should bring their own mask & trowel or something similar.
  Due to COVID 19 & the lock down weeding on the Main Street and other parts of the town have been delayed & have become a problem  & there have been many complaints about the weeds and how bad the town looks compared to other local towns. 
  The weeds have recently been sprayed but remain an eyesore
  Please can you let us know if you are able to volunteer and please pass on to others who would be willing to join in and help to make our town a lovely place once more.
